With the summer quickly approaching, you may be looking for ways around your facility to contribute to local environmental efforts. In addition to financial benefits, installing synthetic turf in your fields and courtyards can help make your property green this summer. Learn about some of these environmental benefits below!
Synthetic Turf Conserves Water
A natural grass lawn requires a lot of water to maintain its lush, green appearance. Synthetic turf provides the healthy appearance of natural grass without needing to waste water or spend most of your time attending to your landscaping efforts. While replacing your grass with a synthetic alternative can limit the amount of landscaping you will be able to do, you’ll be able to add plants and gardens in movable containers around your yard, allowing you to concentrate watering efforts to strategic locations.
Reduced Need for Chemicals
Maintaining natural grass requires a certain amount of chemical products, from fertilizer and growth agents to gasoline from lawn mowers and weed-whackers. Your synthetic turf will not be growing so you won’t need to worry about keeping a stock of gardening chemicals available to encourage healthy grass. Eliminating chemicals will keep the air around your home and neighborhood cleaner, protecting you, your children and pets when outside.
Friendly to Pets
Without randomly dispersed rocks and twigs, the risk of your pet stepping on something sharp and hurting its paw is greatly reduced. The rubber infill provides a soft surface for your pet to run on. Synthetic turf comes with a shock absorbency layer that will be able to cushion falls if your dog jumps after a ball and lands poorly. Synthetic turf is also easy to clean, allowing you to pick up after your pet without ripping up blades of grass and leaving bare patches behind.
